The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #21

Things are picking up here in NY and we've been busy with some repairs, shearing and planning thi past week.  Here on the blog, it's also been an exciting week with a new series of permanent link ups on a variety of homesteading skills. If you missed the link up, make sure you check out the link here and share your posts as permanent links on my site here.

This week I'm excited to share to interesting posts:

If you've never heard of the new gardening method Hugelkultur, make sure to check out this interesting post from Animals Instinct.

Do you have a problem with mites?  Try these solutions from Fresh Eggs Daily

 I want to know what's happening, in your garden, on your homestead, in the barnyard, and in the kitchen.  Whatever is in your backyard farm and home, I would love to hear about it.

Each week I will share some of my favorite posts in the newly formed Backyard Farming Connection Facebook page.  And in case you haven't seen, I have a new 'featured button' so if you've been featured in the past, grab a button.

  6. Hello!
    Thank you for hosting this. I've found you recently and am really interested in your site and the topics. We're growing a big garden this year, by God's provision, and I hope to do a lot of canning.
